Strategic partnerships are established to enhance local practices that are essential to using natural resources equitably and responsibly, protecting the environment and combatting and adapting to climate change.
“With SOCODEVI, we were able to build a new stable for our herd of dairy cattle, while making sure to avoid damaging the surrounding natural environment. Today, I know that our well water is unpolluted and safe for my family and the other homes in the area.”
